We’ve been a bit quiet over the last few weeks with semester descending upon us, but nature hasn’t gone away. I’m sure that you’ve all noticed the sudden drop in temperature this week as the seasons change. Lots of animals will be changing their behaviour to get themselves safely through the winter months. One group of animals that we’re all familiar with that will be getting ready to hibernate is ladybirds. Here’s a lovely video from the Natural History Museum in London showing how to make a Ladybird Lodge to see them through the winter.
If you want more detailed instructions, or you want to know a bit more about ladybirds, you can go the NHM’s webpages.
